Brunch season doesn’t stop just because summer is over. While we’re still tapering off that seasonal heat at this very moment, we’re already thinking ahead to the crisp air of October that gives way to—quite frankly—our favorite brunching weather of all. Without the beating sun and the sweltering temperatures, we’re free to put our best fashion foot forward. Ahead of actual winter chills, there’s nothing that sounds better than a little fresh air as we eat eggs and drink Bloody Marys with our best friends on a Sunday morning.
This season, there are three essential looks for brunching, and we’re pretty sure you already own something that fits into each category. With either a fancy midi skirt and T-shirt, one-and-done dress, or vintage-inspired blue jeans, you’ll be good to go. Below, find our favorite brunch looks for fall.
Whether a wrap, a printed button-front, or patchwork handkerchief hem, a statement-making dress is equally fit for that cocktail party or morning brunch. Just dress it down with some flat sandals or sneakers and you’re good to go!
Grab a wrap dress in a black print that will transition you from summer to fall.
Consider a knit style to take your summer favorites into the next season.

Vintage-inspired jeans are a true wardrobe staple. Worn well all year-round, dressed up or down with ease, this heavy cotton weave is one of our brunching go-tos. This fall, we’re wearing it with oversize blazers for a preppy take on the trend as well as going for that whimsical vibe with a statement top or graphic tee and heels.

Tailor your look with a printed cami and double-breasted blazer.
